June 17, 2016 – Boston, MA – Rising Chief Compliance Officer and Vice President of Care Management Anne Kirby presented at the 2016 Nurse Innovation & Entrepreneurship Summit in Boston at Northeastern University.

The event boasted presentations from both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs – or entrepreneurs who pioneer innovations within their organizations. Given the number of technology and service advancement opportunities available in the insurance industry, emphasizing intrapreneurial positions is key to recruiting new talent given Millennials’ propensity toward entrepreneurship. Studies show that more than 50% of young people are interested in starting their own business.

In the spirit of the Summit, Kirby’s presentation centered on technology innovations she spearheaded to drive a critical aspect of Rising’s early intervention program – opioid management. The program, designed to lower the total cost of claims, is built upon risk scoring analytics, opioid monitoring analytics, and dashboards that simplify the identification of high-risk cases requiring clinical interventions.

The new technologies have helped generate millions of dollars in savings for customers, facilitated opioid addiction prevention, and accelerated patients’ return to work.

Educating young clinical talent about the fight against opioids, medical intervention technologies, and intrapreneurship opportunities in our industry highlight the many ways in which Rising seeks to improve claim outcomes through talent and innovation.
